Update: LEGOs for Ai Weiwei
on Monday, November 30, 2015
What an entirely unexpected response! We were blown away by the community support we received for our LEGO collection for artist Ai Weiwei. After not even two weeks of collecting, we transported more than 70 pounds of LEGOs back to the Brooklyn Museum to be added to their official collection point.
The Des Moines Art Center's #LEGOsforWeiwei contribution at the Brooklyn Museum
Thank you to all of you who donated #LEGOsforWeiwei through the Des Moines Art Center's collection and to those of you who mailed your contributions in separately. We're overwhelmed by your generosity.
We would also like to thank the staff of the Brooklyn Museum for allowing us to take part in collection, specifically Vice Director of Exhibitions and Collections Management Sharon Matt Atkins without whom none of this would have been possible.
